Submit Your Art And Become
CAKUart's Featured Artists!
Im Carl (caku-art.coms
creator and publisher - that is me with some kind of kooky green cocktail drink).
It is always cool when you can display your art for all to
But the problem for many artists promoting their artwork on the
internet is getting traffic to their website (many artist websites are
simply lost in cyberspace).
There are so many
artists out there, and it is my goal to help as many as I can to get more people
looking at their work.
I dont want to see your creative energy being overlooked.
I get a LOT of traffic to this website each and every month and I want to share
some of that traffic with YOU.
Hey, even if you are already a super popular artist I
encourage you to submit your artwork to the CAKUart Art Gallery page. Your
knowledge and expertise will potentially help to inspire thousands of artists
worldwide; not to mention capture the eye of art buyers and collectors who visit
All art photos and artist information will be made
available for everyone to enjoy. Also, if you have some great tips and advice
for other artists; please incorporate that into your submission.
You will also
be able to come back from time to time and view the CAKUart gallery and admire
other artists work - so lets make it an inspirational environment for every
one putting their art out there on show!
**CAKUart Featured Artists Submission Guidelines **
Only submissions with BOTH ARTIST WRITEUP AND PHOTO
will be eligible for the featured artist gallery.
Each photo of art submitted MUST be original and
MUST be artwork that you produced personally.
The artist write-up must be original and cannot be
copied from any other source.
You may submit up to 4 photos. So you can upload
four different pieces of work if you like. Each photo MUST be of your artwork
only and not any unrelated topic (i.e. you painting,
you at an exhibit, your uncle Albert juggling empty
beer bottles, Aunt Martha yelling at Uncle Albert
for juggling empty beer bottles in the kitchen etc)
The categories are Oil, Acrylic, Watercolors, Pen
and Ink, Photography and Mixed Media. So if you work
with any of these mediums you can submit your work!
Submit a video of your artwork. You can also upload
a video of your artwork or of you producing your
art, and upload it to you tube and send us the link.
Please make sure the video clip can be embedded so
we can feature it on the site alongside your art
In your write-up please explain who you are, how long
you have been an artist, what inspires you to
create, and if you can provide some useful tips for
other artists please do so, and provide any other
information that you would like to share.
**Preparing Your Images**
Preparing your artwork photograph for our
featured artist gallery will help us get it online faster and also make your art
look its best.
Resizing your images: Your artwork photo
will be automatically resized once you upload it. However, we suggest that you
crop and resize your images beforehand so that you ensure your costume photo
looks exactly the way you want it.
It's best to resize your photo to 400 pixels
width. When resizing the width, make sure to keep the 'aspect ratio' of the
height so that the image isn't distorted.
Cropping your images: To crop
your image(s) so that your art is centered and large, you can use your own photo
editor (such as Photoshop) or this easy-to-use
online photo editor.
Here is an example of an image before and after
Before Being cropped and
After being cropped and
We totally dig featuring videos
of how your artwork was made and of you the artist "in action". If you send us a
link to an online video, like YouTube for instance, we will re-upload the video
and feature it on our site.
Important: Don't forget to
add your email address on the next page (after pressing the
"Submit" button below) so that:
- We can send you a confirmation email when
your artwork submission has been approved.
- You can receive updates when visitors ask
questions or comment on your featured artist page.
- We can notify you if people inquire about
your work from the CAKU-art site.
